Make Search Bar entry field/box always visible

Recommended Posts

Toby

Hi I would like to know if it is possible to make the search bar field/box always visible, so instead of having a magnifying glass and then animating the box to open when the mouse hovers over, I would like it to always show the box/field and magnifying glass.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Add the following to your custom CSS:

 

#site .searchfield {
width: 150px;
}

This is great, thank you Danny for putting this in!

 

Do you know if there is also a way to have a default text field so that it actually says 'Search' in the box?

 

Thank you for the help!

It should say search when you click on the field ?

When I apply the CSS It always has 'search' in the field, and the word moves left when the user clicks in the field.

You will want to probably change the text-indent styling or make sure that all the search fields CSS have the same width.

Can you put the text-indent styling in the cheatsheet you are creating?

Thanks

Danny sorry... I meant to say that "Search" does show up but is there a way that I can change it to say "Search The Site" or some other form of custom text?

 

Thank you and sorry for the miscommunication on my end!

Hi there,

 

You can change the text using a filter, check out Evans response on this thread which has the filter code - http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/20566-editing-the-search-field-text/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.
